My hubby is a big time hiker, then when he was a child his family would go on these long hiking trips and make camp in the wilderness.
They would bring their own food, fish, pitch a tent, and pee in the woods.
My hubby enjoyed it and talked about it fondly. That was not my experience as a kid. We didn’t camp ever. We always had laundry, a bathroom, and diners nearby. It has been quite a compromise for the two of us. When my pal and I trip my hubby always wants to hike and camp. I force myself to find us long adventurous hikes where my pal and I can see amazing sights and my hubby can feel like this is a big film moment. I basically just stand around sleepy and bored. I correctly refuse to camp during the hikes. Well this year my hubby is turning 30. I figure I owe him a big trip. I have planned for us to fly into Phoenix, AZ. We are going to immediately hike the Grand Canyon. I found online that you can hike down the canyon and camp there if you wanted to. I don’t want to, even though I know he will be all over it. I am planning on one morning of hiking and two days in the canyon. That is going to suck for me, even though I know my hubby will really like it. Then when my pal and I are done my pal and I will care about the city of Phoenix and have access to a shower and a bathroom. That part will be totally for me.
